500 miles for smiles

Operation Smile UAE
United Arab Emirates

Story

For Operation Smile UAE's 10th Anniversary, our Director, Morag is raising funds by challenging herself to complete the North Coast 500 Virtual Challenge. Her goal is to raise 20,000 AED and complete the virtual journey around the North Coast of Scotland (her home country) - a 500 mile (806 km) trip- by the end of 2021.  

Morag will walk, run, cycle and dance her way around the route. 

All proceeds will go towards providing free, safe surgery to children with cleft conditions. 

Stay tuned for updates!

hThe cool turquoise waters look very inviting and it would have been lovely to jump into them last night after a very hot and sticky cycle ride. Some of our families have to cross fast flowing turbulent waters to get to a mission so their child can have surgery.

TThe water looks so cool and inviting. I think it would have been so much easier walking and cycling in Scottish weather but our patients have to walk through all sorts of weather to get to a mission so I am not complaining too much about the weather in Abu Dhabi! 50% of my journey is complete now only another 250 miles to go!!

Cycling in the warm evening last night and again on the indoor bike this morning. Didn't get to see the glorious flowers in the postcard but I am happy to have the extra time to get in the miles. Happy Eid Everyone!!!


#Update

I didn't have to go up such a steep climb in Abu Dhabi this morning but my legs still felt a little wobbly at the end of my walk. Thinking of al the children having to walk over hills to get to a mission.
